If the term “playing the market” seems much less like playing a game and more like taking a big financial risk, there are a variety of ways to teach yourself about investing in the stock market. The stock market, which rises and falls every day, offers a way for you to buy pieces of an organization or company and possibly see a return on your investment. Before investing in the stock market, learn on your own through study or take lessons from stock market industry experts.
